A few of my favourite things: April Edition

So with April being my birthday month I treated myself to a few goodies that I've had my eye on for a while. I have been using these products for the entire month of April and I love them all so much! Enjoy!

I am absolutely head over heels for this powder! I would easily call this my holy grail product! I am someone with oily to combination skin, mainly being oily in my T-zone. This is what I powder my face with after I apply my makeup and most importantly to set my concealer. It's not pretty having your concealer creasing in any fine lines so this does the trick!

These lip butters are awesome! They are soft and creamy with a sheer to opaque coverage depending on application. I even use them under nude lipsticks sometimes so the colour doesn't wash me out. They are great for the summer and they come in such pretty shades!

I wanted to see what the hype was all about with this primer because everyone and their mama has it. So I purchased the travel size of it and I have to say it is definitely worth every penny! I love this primer! It helps me stay matte so much longer than any primer. It goes on so smooth and doesn't leave an icky residue on your face or hands!

I have been searching for nudes that will suit my medium to olive tone skin. The common nude lipsticks wash me out and just make me look sick. I started looking up nude lipsticks that would work with my skin tone and I found the Maybelline "The Buffs" collection. Any girl of any colour should be able to find a suitable nude from this collection. I chose the colours stormy sahara and truffle tease and I love them! I sometimes mix them with the revlon lip butters to add a touch of colour! They are great lipsticks, creamy and long lasting! 

Last but not least on my favourites list are my favourite, holy grail brushes, my real techniques! I love this set in particular because I use all these brushes for the application and powdering of concealer and face products! They are amazing brushes with great packaging and and the bristles are soft and perfect for their function. Also they clean really well and dry much quicker than my other brushes! Note: I have been using these for a long time but I wanted to mention them in this favourites post!

Well ladies, these are favourites for last month, I know this is super late for an April favourites but hopefully it benefits someone who is looking into these products! Let me know if you guys use them too!


  1. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the Maybelline nude lipsticks as it can be very hard to find nudes which are WOC friendly. I love the Real Techniques brushes; they are amazing. I'm now following you on GFC. I'd love it if you could follow me too? xoxo
